I have been a fan of the universe for a long time. I am not sure what came first for me, MechWarrior 2 PC game or the Battletech cartoon but I was hooked. Mechwarrior 2 Mercs came next and then a gap for a couple of years and then I found TRO: 3050 (2nd edition) in my local games shop.... and away I went to the point that I have pretty much the entire collection of BT books now.
For a lot of 2011 was spent taking a break from a lot of BattleTech and a lot of my other hobbies due to concentrating on starting my own business, now that that is up and running I am back and starting to get involved in things again (BT is my stress relief!).
Personal Project List
Whilst I am not a huge fan of the Clans I see a need for all the bloodnames to as a minimum have a stub article.
- Burrock - In Progress
- Coyote - In Progress
- Ghost Bear - In Progress (P1), new Ras bloodnames? (P2).
- Goliath Scorpion - In Progress
- Hell's Horses - In Progress
- Ice Hellion - In Progress
- Jade Falcon - Done, except ChiLi / Chi-Li, need to check with writers.
- Mongoose - In Progress
- Nova Cat - In Progress
- Sea Fox - In Progress
- Snow Raven - In Progress
- Wolf - Done (P1), separate lineages maybe add in honour names? (P2).
This is a huge and likely never ending project to unearth all the most obscure commands and units imaginable.
Project Dark Age
A lot of the Dark Age stuff has generally been ignored, I intend to start changing this. The CCG has more pages on the wiki that the Clicks game despite the huge success of the game. The internet is quite sparse on info about it in general.
Project house is an ongoing project to catalog the noble houses of the Inner Sphere as best I can. BattleTech is space feudalism but we do not actually see a lot of it going on beyond the 5 main houses. I am interested in the various Dukes, Counts and Barons.
- Phase 1 - Migrate all of the House xxxx Character profiles to reflect nation state over House.
- House Davion - Done
- House Steiner - Done
- House Marik - Done
- House Liao - In Progress
- HouseKurita - In Progress
Project Video Game
The Video games are probably the biggest draw to the universe so the fact that the fluff on them is often quite bare bones is a bit tragic. I intend to beef up some of the fluff elements where I can.
- Easter eggs
